I had the pleasure of shooting new model Sean Little today. This was Sean's first professional photo shoot and after initially being nervous, he soon warmed up and seemed like an old pro. The six foot model is also an avid skateboarder.  I'm looking forward to seeing his career blossom into big things.

Sean is currently represented by Mr. Deriq Odell.

In the wake of the Newtown, CT shooting on Friday, December 14th 2012, I am completely devastated and became physically ill by the senseless murders of the people, children and adults who perished yesterday.

In the day since, the devastation has turned to anger. Outrage that there are reports that the person who committed this atrocity apparently had issues long before he committed this crime. How do we as parents, as human beings and as a society continue to see and know these things and do absolutely nothing, nothing about it?

What happened to "It takes a village"? , What happened to "I am my brother's keeper"? How dare we not unequivocally do something? put some kind of "law" in place not 6 months from now, not a year from now but right now that absolutely forbids people to own firearms without a thorough background check and psychological evaluation. It seems that innocence can now only be found in a painting. I have to ask why would you want or need to purchase a gun unless you at some point intended on using it?

There are clearly too many people who are walking, talking time bombs and there is a mental health issue that needs to be addressed before someone is allowed to write their address on an application to purchase a weapon.

The 'Right to Bear Arms' Is Not More Important Than a Child's Right to Grow Up

I know there will be talk of solutions, amendments, ratifications and the like for a while and then once again there will be silence but I believe too many of these  incidents have made that silence deafening.

I am afraid that with every tragedy I and the world experience, my heart breaks just a little bit more and soon  there will nothing left.

I have been fortunate to be mentored by a few people in my career who also became great friends. One of those people is Music Executive Derrick Thompson and another is Kissa Thompson (No relation and ironically, she is also a former music executive). Kissa has just been featured in Black Enterprise Magazine and I wanted to share with you guys.Buttafly Unlimited Original

I had the privilege of photographing actor Leonardo Benitez today. The charismatic young actor is working on his first film project and was a joy to work with. In speaking with him you could feel the passion he has for his chosen craft. Remember his name, you'll be hearing more of it in the future.


Just received an awesome text from a customer who purchased one of the time pieces. They told me I could quote them so I will.
" Brian my beautiful time piece arrived in the mail today. The picture of the watch is nothing like how it looks in person. In person, the watch is ravishing. Brian you are a talented designer. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world" - Sean.   

 Who says there is no sunshine when it rains? This was such an awesome message to receive and I am so appreciative. Thank you.

Come Join us this Saturday, December 15th 2012 at AK COUTURE BOUTIQUE & BEAUTY BAR located at 4516 Church Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11203 (347) 492-2522 for the CHIRP by BSIXTEE6 TRUNK SALE.



I am a designer, I am a writer, I am a singer, I am a dancer, I am a comedian, I am emotional, I am an actor, I care about people, animals and things deeply, I am.....It's taken me a long time to embrace, to accept, to acknowledge those things about myself. It's taken me a long time to understand that all that I am others may not buy into, may not believe it, may not accept it and it's taken me a  long time to understand that even if who I am is not true for them doesn't mean it's not true.

I always feel as though I'm at a crossroads between what people think of me and who I genuinely am, who my spirit tells me I am. Even one person's fiction is another one's truth. Even if I never danced on a stage, won an oscar, recorded an album, wrote a novel, told a joke, it doesn't or shouldn't take away from who I believe myself to be. Coming to that realization is when I began to understand that I had given others too much power over me and kept none for myself.

I am often not associated with being a creative person but more associated with not being accomplished. Even when you can prove your accomplishments, you still are not considered accomplished enough. I'm always trying to prove myself to others and in the process forget that I am all of the things that I stated I am. Forgetting who and what I am has at times caused me considerable stress, immense depression that I would often smile through thinking that if I didn't appear happy, those that I was seeking approval from wouldn't buy into the "Product" that I was selling.

For some, the definition of being creative means that you are some non-person whose intent was to be something else and failed.  If asked who has said these things about me, I honestly could not tell you the name of one person who said it to my face but because of that,  some would say that it's all in my head but there are at times a penetrable energy that you receive from people that speak louder than any words could ever say.

I have started on my journey of taking the power that I allowed others to have over me back. I have begun the journey of not just saying "I am all of these things" but believing them. I understand that if I don't take responsibility for my soul, then my soul will cease to exist.

I will not allow others to tell my story. I will no longer be silent in acknowledging my spirit,  in participating in my life and in that, sharing my life with others in a way that allows the light in.
